A case from India of pleural malignant mesothelioma probably due to domestic and environmental asbestos exposure: a posthumous report.

BMJ Case Reports 2019 March 31 [Link] Muralidhar V, Raghav P, Das P, Goel A Abstract India is the largest consumer of asbestos in the world. There is no report from India of mesothelioma related to asbestos. The case is a 42-year-old man who died of pleural mesothelioma. He was exposed to asbestos domestically and […]

Asbestos fiber identification in liver from cholangiocarcinoma patients living in an asbestos polluted area: a preliminary study.

Tumori 2019 March 27 [Link] Grosso F, Croce A, Libener R, Mariani N, Pastormerlo M, Maconi A, Rinaudo C Abstract PURPOSE:: To assess whether asbestos fibers may be observed in liver tissue of patients with cholangiocarcinoma (CC) with environmental or working asbestos exposure. METHODS:: Detection of fibers was performed directly on histologic sections of liver […]

Environmental asbestos exposure in childhood and risk of mesothelioma later in life: a long-term follow-up register-based cohort study.

Occupational and Environmental Medicine 2019 February 25 [Link] Dalsgaard SB, Würtz ET, Hansen J, Røe OD, Omland Ø Abstract OBJECTIVE: To examine the risk of malignant mesothelioma (MM) in former pupils who attended primary school near an asbestos cement plant. METHODS: A cohort of 12 111 former pupils, born 1940-1970, was established from individual historical records […]

Association between mesothelioma and non-occupational asbestos exposure: systematic review and meta-analysis.

Environmental Health 2018 December 19 [Link] Xu R, Barg FK, Emmett EA, Wiebe DJ, Hwang WT Abstract BACKGROUND: The risk of mesothelioma has been shown to be associated with exposure to asbestos fibers. Most of the existing literature focuses on occupational exposure; however, non-occupational asbestos exposure has also been identified as an important risk factor. […]

The significance of non-occupational asbestos exposure in women with mesothelioma.

Respirology Case Reports 2018 November 20 [Link] Tlotleng N, Sidwell Wilson K, Naicker N, Koegelenberg CF, Rees D, Phillips JI Abstract Malignant mesothelioma is a rare and aggressive pleural or peritoneal tumour almost always caused by exposure to asbestos fibres. Exposure to asbestos can cause malignant mesothelioma 30-40 years after exposure. A description of sources of […]

The role of fiber type and cumulative exposure in controlling mesothelioma risk.

Toxicology and Applied Pharmacology 2018 October 28 [Link] Langer AM, Nolan RP Abstract The acceptance of primary tumors arising on the serosal surface of body cavities and its association with asbestos exposure was established in 1960. Epidemiological studies followed in an effort to determine if all asbestos fiber types produced the same malignancy and with […]
